  • This study examines the relations between earnings informativeness, measured by the earnings-return relation, and the ownership structure of 977 companies in seven East Asian economies. Our results are consistent with two complementary explanations. First, concentrated ownership and the associated pyramidal and cross-holding structures create agency conflicts between controlling owners and outside investors. Consequently, controlling owners are perceived to report accounting information for self-interested purposes, causing the reported earnings to lose credibility to outside investors.

  • Listening comprehension is difficult for foreign language learners because it is a continuous process that requires learners to understand messages while listening to them and sometimes can lead to a heavy cognitive load. In order to minimise listening barriers, various media presentation modes and ubiquitous learning activities should be implemented for teaching and learning because they are convenient and can enhance students’ learning motivation and learning performance (Liu & Chu, ...

These systems require huge outlays of resources and technical intervention in a losing battle to keep pace with demand for faster time to intelligence and deeper insight. In today’s business climate, every leading organization finds itself in the data business.

  • While the financial meltdown of the last decade and its consequences are still being felt, many are already talking of another one originating in the Euro zone. The global economic slowdown was a natural consequence of the events of 2007-8 which has led to a gloomy investment climate. For obvious reasons, most investors appear to have adopted a more cautious approach. The situation has not been very different in India, with the potential addition of other issues to contend with.

  • This is not to say that this is not a linguistics text. It is, and linguistics permeates every single page. But the difference is that it is not trying to tell you how to become a linguist – and what things to get excited about – but what linguistic theory has to offer for the understanding of the English language. Many introductory text books in syntax use language data as a way of justifying the theory, so what they are...

  • Armstrong and Vickers (2001) have shown that if the consumers are required to buy all the goods at one shop (a practice usually referred to as \pure bundling") the competition can be modeled in terms of utility o ers made by retailers and thus solved relatively easily. The aim of this study is distinctly di erent: we want to analyze pricing strategies of multiproduct retailers when, at least some, consumers are able to buy products at di erent shops. This phenomena seems to be widespread (e.g.

  • Company Act of 1940. 14 If the current rules were in place in 2007 and 2008, prime MMMFs could still have held the distressed asset-backed commercial paper and Lehman debt securities that triggered support for many funds and the break the buck event for the Reserve Fund.

  • Possibly nothing in Kant’s philosophy has left more room for confusion and debate than his writings on the pure intuition of space. In no small part this is due to Kant’s aggravatingly brief discussion of what was nothing less than a radical and revolutionary idea in philosophy. But in part it is also due to a pervasive tendency to admix the idea of space with that of geometry, and to a seeming obviousness of what is meant by the term “space.” For most of us, “space” taken as an object means “physical space,” and there would seem to...

  • The rules are also flexible for communicating effectively with customers who are blind or have low vision. For example, a restaurant can put its menu on an audio cassette or a waiter can read it to a patron. A sales clerk can find items and read their labels. In more complex transactions where a significant amount of printed information is involved, providing alternate formats will be necessary, unless doing so is an undue burden. For example, when a client who is blind visits his real estate agent to negotiate the sale of a house, all relevant...
